OSTO® is a revolutionary product which reduces carbon emissions through: (1) Avoidance. OSTO® is made of waste products that would be incinerated. LCM prevents this waste being burnt which would immediately release harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. To put this into perspective, a forest the size of London would need to be planted every single year to counteract the quantity of carbon emissions associated with incinerating our waste.(2) Mineralisation. OSTO® permanently sequesters and stores CO2 in the aggregate, and therefore locks it within the resulting concrete.(3) Reduction. OSTO® reduces the reliance on traditional carbon intensive lightweight aggregates, therefore, enables construction firms to replace carbon-intensive materials in their value chain.
OSTO® is made from a combination of waste materials.
OSTO® can be used in a variety of concrete applications. One of the most exciting uses is to create carbon neutral medium-dense concrete blockwork.
Concrete is a major contributor to carbon emissions across the world. After water, concrete is the most widely used substance on earth, producing 8% of the planet's CO2.
OSTO® can be used in conjunction with other materials such as gravel, sand and cement. It can be used to replace traditional lightweight aggregates.
